It's a long way to go

I suddenly realize that there are much knowledge of cosplay, and what I have known before is

just a tip of the iceberg. There are so many things related to it. I feel puzzled sometimes,

and maybe I should read more materials.

A good cosplayer must know it well and love it very much. If one has no interest in it, he or

she will not do it well. For me, there is a long long way to go. But I will spare no efforts to

make progress everyday. As a popular saying goes in our Chinese, "The way ahead is long and

has no ending, yet high and low Iíll search with my will unbending."

I'm feeling pedantic today, so congratulations you're the lucky spambot. Since you're going to be cluttering up the forum with posts anyway, I'm going to tell you how to make them suck less. This is for everyone's benefit.

This is an English-speaking forum. You're dealing with an overwhelmingly Western, predominantly US, audience. And you're using a very Chinese writing style: that means you're suggesting rather than stating, trying to convey a sort of impressionistic sense of your purpose and intent, restating your point multiple times in different ways, and using proverbs/appeals to consensus as support. THIS is a decent article on the differences between Chinese and Western writing structures and styles.

I'm going to speak broadly here. To a Western audience, it looks like you're wasting their time while you figure out what you're really trying to say. This is especially relevant in your case specifically, since as a seller account looking to bump up their number of posts, you REALLY ARE WASTING OUR TIME. Being vague and pointless isn't helping.

If you were actually here to become part of the community, which you're not, I'd not only be a lot gentler about this but I'd offer you some real advice. But I'm not going to do that because, as has been said for generations, "You're part of the problem."

So, how can you stop sucking? Let's consider this together! Here's a list.
1. Stop talking.
2. Go away.
3. When you make a new account, instead of pretending you're a sweet gentle girl who just wants to cosplay and make friends, pretend you're actually a guy who's fed the fuck up with trying to fool snarky internet assholes and didn't spend years learning English for this bullshit.

That's the most poetic spam bot ever.

I wonder if they're getting paid to do this.

Referrals, marketing tactics --- hell if I know, the entire "sales" process has some purposefully deceitful things in it that employers actually pay for.

It might just be because they want to put a footprint of their storefront in the marketplace and are trying to up their post count with it.

Heck, if that was their purpose, they could do so by not creating threads and simply commenting on existing ones (While trying to stay on topic), the notice they'd get would be much lower that way....
